Towards the lower left you can just see the edge of the lagoon. The boatshed and Rowing club from the same footbridge. In the foreground is the lagoon, and begind it towards the left is Wellington Harbour. One of the models used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy on display at Te Papa.

The same model from the other side. Looking out towards the Queens Wharf Event Centre from Te Papa. Reflections off the window are visible on the right hand side.
Looking out from Te Papa further north. The Beehive building can be seen on the right. The green building at the bottom centre is the Dockside restaurant.
